Tottenham Hotspur could be without their talisman, Harry Kane, if the ankle injury he sustained in the Premier League match against Everton on Friday was anything to go by.
The 27-year-old English striker was all Tottenham Hotspur needed in the Premier League match. He scored Tottenham Hotspur’s two goals in the match which ended 2-2.
Harry Kane scored his first goal in the match in the 27th minute but Kane’s goal did not give Spurs the lead for long before Everton’s Gylfi Sigurdsson scored the equalizer from the spot-kick.
In the second half of the game, Sigurdsson gave Everton the lead for the first time in the thrilling encounter in the 62nd minute. Kane stepped in to rescue a point for Tottenham in the 68th minute.
Kane’s second goal at Goodison Park on Friday was all Tottenham Hotspur needed to secure an important point which helped them to remain on the 7th spot on the league table.
However, towards the end of the game, Harry Kane and Everton’s Richarlison were involved in a challenge that led to Tottenham’s captain sustaining an ankle injury. Immediately after the incident, Tottenham’s physios came on to patch him up.
After the medical attention, it became obvious that Kane would not be able to complete the game, hence, he was substituted by Dele Alli in the additional 3rd minute. The England international limped off the pitch.
After the game, Tottenham Hotspur’s coach Jose Mourinho expressed optimism that the injury might not be as serious as it seems.
“I think it is too early to say something”, Mourinho said. “For him to leave the pitch at 2-2 with a couple of minutes to go is obviously because he felt something.
“But let me be optimistic and believe that he has time to recover, let’s see. Let me be optimistic and believe that it is nothing serious.
“It is obvious that he is a very important player for us. That is more than obvious but I cannot say much, I cannot speculate or help any speculation around it.”
While Tottenham defender Eric Dier said the fact that Kane left the field limping is worrying, noting that Kane is not the kind of player that gets injured easily.
“Obviously it is always worrying when you see him limping because he doesn’t fall over easily”, Dier told Sky Sports.
“He takes a lot of knocks and gets on with it, but it is obviously early days to say what it is or how bad it is. He is a tough boy and he will do as [much] as he can to be ready.”
Also, Harry Kane took to his official Twitter handle after the game to post a picture with the caption: “Disappointed with only a point. Big week coming up.”

If the injury the English football captain sustain is anything to go by, he might miss Tottenham’s league game against Southampton on April 21 and the EFL Cup final between Tottenham and Manchester City on April 25.
